New Hitman Game Under Development At IO Interactive, Not Cancelled

hitmanThe latest Hitman game, Hitman: Absolution, was released back in 2012 and if you were wondering about the fate of the franchise, you can rest assured it has not been cancelled entirely as Square Enix has confirmed that a new Hitman game, tentatively referred to as Hitman 6, is currently in development at IO Interactive. Earlier it had been reported that the game Square Enix had been working on had been cancelled. This was revealed by a LinkedIn profile of Richard Knight, a senior designer at the company, whose profile showed that the game had been cancelled back in 2013. Thankfully that is not the case as Square Enix has since stepped forward to clear any confusion.

According to a statement released by Square Enix, “IO Interactive is developing a new, AAA Hitman game that will be coming to PC and next-gen consoles and Square Enix Montreal is fully focused on mobile development of games some of which are related to the Hitman franchise. We look forward to sharing more details about these titles later this year.” Knight’s profile did mention something about mobile development but as it turns out, it’s a case of “and” and not “instead of” with regards to new Hitman-related games. Not much is known about the next Hitman game, but we guess fans can now breathe a sign of relief knowing that the game has not been cancelled, although how long we would have to wait for its release is still a mystery.
